The Paso Desolación trail offers one of the best day hikes in Chile’s Lake District, with stunning views of the surrounding volcanoes and of the blue water below.
You will be met in the morning by your private guide and will set out for a full day hiking excursion, with glacier-clad Osorno Volcano on one side and expansive views of gorgeous Lago Todos Los Santos and the surrounding mountains on the other. Your path leads along the flanks of the volcano, then downwards towards the lake, finally passing through the forest along the shores. Along the way you’ll have panoramic views of the lake, Margarita Island, and the Tronador volcanoes, and you’ll make a stop for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon you will have a visit to the nearby Petrohue Waterfalls. At the end of the day you will be dropped back off at your hotel.
